What is a printable?
A printable is a piece of content someone can print either for free or by purchasing the file to print. Common types of printable are: planners, meal plans, art, inspirational quotes, birthday invitations, wedding invitations, and anniversary invitations.
How much should I sell printables on Etsy for?
Pricing is really dependent on each seller. There is no right or wrong answer. Find a price that you’re comfortable with that you think is fair for both you the seller, and your future customers! Pricing low might guarantee more sales, but pricing higher isn’t bad either – if it took a lot of work and is unique, don’t undervalue yourself!
3 Important Steps To Sell Printables On Etsy
1. Upload to your shop.
Once you’ve set up your Etsy shop, upload your printable to a listing for the price you’ve chosen. Be sure to use nice, well-lit images and for printables, you may want to look into framing them to make them stand out or have a nice background to make your picture stand out from the rest.
2. Make sure to give accurate, detailed descriptions of your product.
This helps you rank high in searches and generate some sales. Include things like color, size, purpose (is it a planner, invitation, etc.?) so that people can find your product easier.
3. Market, market, market.
Pinterest is a great way to market your products, especially on Etsy. Pinterest is a very visual platform and having beautiful pictures of your product in pins is a great way to get some clicks to your shop and products that will hopefully convert into sales! Word of mouth is great too! Tell friends, family, and it’s a good idea to whip up some business cards for your Etsy shop that you can hand out to people you meet if it comes up in conversation.
